1. Use Your Curtains Wisely

  • Open your curtains during the day to take advantage of the free heat from the sun.
  • Close your curtains at night to keep the house warm.

2. Insulate Your Hot Water Heater

3. Cook at Home

  • By using your oven and stove to cook food, not only is the homecooked meal going to keep you warm, but the heat from the oven and stove will aide in warming your home.

4. Use Draft Stoppers on Your Doors

5. Cover Floors with Rugs

  • Heat can escape through floorboards

6. Close Off Rooms You Don’t Use Regularly

  • Closing the vents and doors in rooms you do not use all the time (guest rooms) will allow the heat to transfer to space you regularly use.

7. Add Thick Socks and Knit Hat to Your Sleepwear

  • Yes, sleeping with a knit hat on may look ridiculous, but it will allow you to insulate more heat!

8. Move Bed Away from Window

“Reliable and Ready” REALTOR® since 2016. I was born in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, but was raised in Texas since 1997. When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community. Some of the organizations I am involved with are: The Professional Development Committee, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee, and Tyler Educational Networking Group. Some awards I have won were “The Hustle Award” in 2016, and “Rookie of the Year” in 2017. When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend quality time with my friends and family doing the following: running, target practice, read and participate in book club, and playing with my dachshund Greta.
